The Coronavirus and Your Pets

It’s no secret that fear of the infamous coronavirus is increasing around the world, and while we have no desire to increase panic or raise alarm, we thought some of you might be wondering how this can affect your fur babies.

But just to be safe, she recommends that pet owners who do come down with COVID-19 take precautions to protect their animals.
